Keep Calm and Carry On Caring

The coronavirus pandemic has dominated the news in recent weeks. It has also meant that Affinity carers, who are key workers, are working even harder to keep our clients safe. The virus is a risk to everyone, however, the scientific evidence shows those at most risk are the over 70s and those who have underlying health conditions. 


We would like to reassure everyone: we are taking the coronavirus very seriously and taking steps to keep everyone safe. Our brilliant carers have remained calm and are following all the guidance to keep themselves and our clients healthy: regularly washing and sanitizing hands, wearing protective equipment like gloves and aprons, and following social distance rules when not at work.


In a time of national emergency it’s great to see communities working together to support the vulnerable. From the 700,000 volunteers who have signed up to help the NHS, to those checking in on their vulnerable neighbours, to everyone who participated in the Clap For Carers event, and everyone just staying at home: it’s truly inspiring to see the best of British values on display.


Please remember to continue to do your part by staying indoors for all but essential travel, remain apart by two metres from other people and regularly wash your hands. More guidance and support can be found here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/


Everyone at Affinity would like to say a massive thank you to all the other key workers and NHS staff who are saving lives


Stay at home. Protect the NHS. Save lives.
